Asheville North Carolina Vacation Travel

More About Asheville - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
Accessible year round, Asheville winters are mild, spring explodes with blossoms, summers are cool, and the fall colors inspire. That said, the slower season, from January to March, typically has cheaper rates on just about everything. Being in the Appalachian Mountains, pack accordingly as nights can be considerably cooler than the days.

Where to stay?
When it comes to lodging, the legendary Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa stands as the piece de resistance in Asheville. But don't feel confined if that doesn't fit your budget or isn't your style. Fine hotels and intimate bed and breakfasts abound. If you do stay at a spa, be sure to schedule your treatments when you book your room, and keep an eye out for Websites that bundle golf or spa treatments with your accommodation.

What to do?
A trip to Asheville wouldn't be complete without a visit to America's largest mansion, the Biltmore Estate and its winery. But take your time getting there - the panoramic views on the Blue Ridge Parkway are not to be missed. Be adventurous! See if you can spot entrances to the hidden passageways in the Biltmore, explore the charm of the neighboring towns, or take a day trip to Cold Mountain, yep the very same one made famous by the novel and movie.
